“For Machias Maine this is it...”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Went here because I was told this place is "hopping". This bar is a good size bar with a divider to separate the bar area from the pool table area. There was traps hanging from the ceiling, it is Maine. The Bartender was very personable and made very good and strong drinks. The place started to get going around 10. It seems like a local watering hole, kind of "Cheers" style but only in Machias. The age bracket was broad from early 20's to 60's but all the people were very talkative. I really enjoyed myself there.

“OK not great”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 via mobile

We were in town for business. Had dinner. Apps and pub food. Waitress was good and honest. Was the only employee besides cook on duty. The place was busy. Food was ok for pub food. Wings were good. Just a very long time to get food but we new that. Not a lot of choices in the area. Not bad but not great.
